Naco Ariz., Dec. 5. Coroner E. A. Folsom, in a telegram to governor G. W P'Hunt, Friday, suggested a moans nf ending tne wuui i......B soldiers and civilians on American soil bv buUeS land shells fired by the hos tile forces at Naco. Sonora. He would , .. v,a fire. In his message, coroner Folsom said: . "There is a rernedy for this state of i affairs which can be administered ".i .1 without Invasion of for- ' eien territory. It is no more an act of wf? to fire into Mexico tha for Mexicans to fire into the United States. Our guns have the longer range and by returning this fire, we could force the immediate withdrawal of the of fenders." ... ' Won't Hold Inijnests. The coroner's telegram was inspired by the killing of one and the wounding of two more persons on American soil Friday. He appealed to the .governor for action, and refused to hold inquests over the bodies of those killed, because of the danger to the coroner's jurymen. Hunt HcneiTfi Appeal. Governor Hunt replied he had made another appeal to the state department for the protection of noncombatants in Arizona from Mexican fire. The toll of three from the Mexican fire Friday included Antonio Brace .monte. a Mexican teamster who was shot through the heart and killed Tvhlle he was at work in front of the United States postoffice here, and private John Miller of the 10th U. & cavalry, who was shot in the breast while near the border patrol camp. 47 Have Been Shot. This makes a total of 47 persons hit by the Mexican fire during the siege of Naco, Sonora, begun two months ago by governor Maytorena with his Villa troops. The besieged, the Carranza forces or Gen. Hill, have suffered less in casualties since Nov. 18 than have the noncombatants in Naco, Ariz. Coroner Folsom's message to the governor reviews the previous appeals made by Naco citizens. Some time ago committee asked the gover nor for permission to protect the border with a band of 500 cowboys re placing the federal troops on the bor der patrol. This permission was re fused and governor Hunt took the mat ter up with secretary Bryan and the president. Fhe Shot! President Pleased. In commenting upon the -result of this appeal, the message says: "There has been absolutely no Im provement In the situation. In fact American prestige has sunk to such a degree that a United States customs house has become a favorite target for the cannon of the attacking forces. One day when five persons were shot in Naco the newspapers here printed the statement that president Wilson was much pleased with conditions in Mexi co." Eighteen Injured Are American. Of the 47 persons hit by the Mexican fire, IS were Americans and 29 Mexi cans. Fourteen were American soldiers. Five of the 47 are dead, one is blind and two are in a dangerous condition. Two days ago Col. C. A. P. Hatfield, commanding the border patrol, sent a warning to Maytorena that the firing across the international line "would not be tolerated."
